Austinrenowned for its literate population relies on just a few independent bookshops
Seems like independent bookstoresmaybe even all bookstoresare endangered.
Who knows, eventually there might come a day when people don't remember the joy of browsing the shelves, leafing through a book, cherishing the touch of the pages, the aroma of the bindery glue, the sound of the riffle, the art of the book designer.
Happily, that time hasn't arrived yet.
